Today is your last chance to register to vote on November ballot


DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) – If you want to vote in the upcoming general election the deadline to register is Tuesday.

Even with the deadline looming, County Boards of Election were all closed Monday for the Columbus Day holiday.

If you’ve been procrastinating Tuesday is your last chance to get registered to vote in the November election.

If you live in Montgomery County you can print out a form online or stop by your local board office, library or any state agency office. If your application is postmarked Tuesday you will be registered.

Online voter registration will not be in effect until 2017 so you still need to register in person for this year’s election. That includes voters who will turn 18 anytime before November 8.

Susan Hesselguesser, Executive Director of the League of Women Voters of Greater Dayton tells 2 NEWS they’ve seen a surge in voter interest following the debate Sunday night.

“So voter registrations I would say are up.  Also people need to know that they need to update their voter registration if they’ve moved or if they’ve changed their name, so they can still do that and they have to do that because if they don’t they’re going to end up voting provisionally and those votes, you get the same ballot, but those votes don’t get counted until several days after the election,” said Hesselguesser. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
